SADHGURU: “How Your Energy System And Imagination Are Connected”

“If you have conclusions about everything, there is no possibility, no receptivity. If you have conclusions, you do not have to be attentive — you can go through life like you are dead. The more conclusions you have, the more rigor mortis there is in your mind and in your body as well.”

~Sadhguru

 

There is a certain geometry to the physical existence and to the energy existence. Everything in the universe, from the atomic to the cosmic, works the way it does because of geometric perfection. One of the most fundamental and the most stable forms in geometry is a triangle. In the human energy system, there are two equilateral triangles — an upward-pointing one below, and a downward-pointing one above. Normally, these two triangles meet just above the anahata. To work with your mind and imagination, it is important to adjust the alignment of the two triangles at least to some extent. The ideal alignment would be that the upward-pointing and the downward-pointing triangles intersect to such an extent that they form a perfect six-pointed star with six equilateral triangles on the outside.

With the necessary alignment, you will be able to exercise your imagination in such a way that you can manifest what you want outside of you. To enhance the power of your imagination, you need to lift the upward-pointing triangle, which in terms of the geometry of the body is the foundation, to such an extent that it includes the vishuddhi, which is the basis of your imagination. There is sadhana to move it up and hold it there, all the time. If you do not have such sadhana, a simple way to achieve this is not to eat for a period of time. Generally, when the stomach is empty, the upward-pointing triangle tends to rise by itself. Once you eat, it descends again.

The Importance of Keeping the Chakras Mobile

There are one hundred and fourteen chakras in the body. The seventy-two thousand nadis, or energy pathways in the system, have one hundred and fourteen significant junction points, where the nadis meet in substantial numbers and redistribute themselves. These points are generally known as chakras, which literally means “wheel” or “circle,” though they are actually triangles. We call them “chakras” because that suggests movement — moving forward. Out of these hundred and fourteen, two are outside of the physical realm. For most human beings, these two are very feeble, unless they put in the necessary sadhana. Out of the remaining one hundred and twelve chakras, a few are generally located in certain parts of the body, on a physiological level. The rest of the chakras could be moving to some extent.

The way the chakras move depends on what you do with yourself. If you want to empower yourself to do different types of activities and to adjust to different type of situations, the pranic physiology or the chakra physiology of the body needs to be able to adjust accordingly. Doing the necessary work to keep the chakras mobile is important because the mobility of the chakras determines how flexible and effective you are in different types of situations, in order to meet different types of requirements. The problem with most human beings is in one situation, they function well. In another situation, they are a total mess. This is because they can only think, feel and act in a particular way.

You should be able to do everything well, with a little practice. But this will not work if your energy system is rigid. So, keeping your system mobile is important, not just because we want to do different kinds of activities in the world. It also gives you a certain flexibility of experience, that you are comfortable in any kind of situation. To be at ease, your energies must be flexible. These hundred and twelve chakras can be used as hundred and twelve doorways to your ultimate nature. That is why Adiyogi gave one hundred and twelve ways to attain to the ultimate.

To be able to move this complex triangular structure of your physiology the way you want it requires a different level of sadhana. But the most fundamental thing is that these two triangles should intersect. Normally, the upward-pointing triangle is below and the downward-pointing triangle is above. If you bring the two equilateral triangles to a point where they intersect in such a way that they form a star with six equilateral triangles, the system is in balance and becomes very receptive. My work is about presence and transmitting something, for which you need receptivity. My words are not going to enlighten you. I only say things to confuse you, because you cannot enlighten anyone by talking. It is the presence that has the power to transform.

From Conclusions to Confusion to Consciousness

Talking is a good tool only to destroy the idiotic conclusions that people have made. When conclusions are destroyed, confusion happens. Being joyfully confused about everything in the universe is a good state to be in. This means you are constantly paying attention to everything. Once you realize that you do not know a thing, you become receptive. If you have conclusions about everything, there is no possibility, no receptivity. If you have conclusions, you do not have to be attentive — you can go through life like you are dead. The more conclusions you have, the more rigor mortis there is in your mind and in your body as well.

“Being joyfully confused about everything in the universe is a good state to be in. This means you are constantly paying attention to everything. Once you realize that you do not know a thing, you become receptive.”

 

If you are doing hatha yoga every day, you will notice that on a day when your attitude is kind of rigid, your body will not bend. On another day, when you are happy and mentally flexible, your body will bend much better. The nature of your consciousness is manifesting in every cell of your body, every moment of your life. That is why there are many kinds of self-inflicted diseases in the world today. Never before, human beings had as many food choices as we have today. In earlier times, people ate what was locally available. Today, in spite of so much variety, there is so much illness. In fact, the more choices people have, the sicker they get.

The United States is probably one of the countries with the greatest variety of food choices, but they also spend a huge amount of money on healthcare — three trillion dollars per year. That is a crime against humanity. If those who do not get sufficient nourishment are ill, it is understandable. But if those who are eating well are sick, it means something fundamental is going wrong. We have not understood that every cell in your body was created by the nature of your consciousness. If you do not know how to keep the nature of your consciousness well, you will not know how to keep your system well. Then you will function by accident, which need not be so.

We as human beings do everything that other creatures do too — we eat, sleep, reproduce, and die. One thing that distinguishes us is we are making a lot of fuss about all that, just as an aside. The most important difference about human beings is we can do all these things fully consciously. For example, you can eat fully consciously. Let us say you are hungry. If you were some other creature, you would just pick up whatever suits you and devour it. But as a human being, you are able to wait until mealtime, sit at the table, chant the invocation, and rather than stuffing your face with both hands, eat with your right hand. This is being conscious. If you go by the body alone, you will want to eat immediately. But since you have the necessary intelligence and awareness to hold back the compulsions of the body, you can respond to the situation in a conscious manner. If someone behaves very compulsively, they say he is like an animal. So, this is a journey from compulsiveness to consciousness.

Consciousness gives you the possibility to become free from your tendencies. Even if you have been ruled by all kinds of tendencies until this moment, if you respond fully consciously now, there will be a distance between you and the accumulated tendencies that you have. If you make every aspect of life conscious — not only in action, but also in thought, emotion, and energy — you will be on top of the world.

LISA RENEE (Energetic Synthesis): “Exercising an Open Mind”

galaxieswithin

Neuroplasticity, also known as brain plasticity (flexibility), is an umbrella term that encompasses both synaptic flexibility (the connection of neurons) and non-synaptic flexibility (modification of action potential) to strengthen or change neuron synaptic signaling.  Plasticity or flexibility in the brain affects the strength and action of neural connections and pathways.  Synaptic flexibility plays a large role in a person’s ability to activate higher learning and access memory functions in the brain.

This also refers to changes made in neural pathways and synapses due to changes in a person’s behavior, environment, neural processes, thinking, emotions, as well as changes resulting from shifts in consciousness.  Substantial changes made in thinking and in responding to various forms of stimuli can profoundly alter the pattern of neuronal activation in response to the way a person experiences or perceives reality.

This means that our direct experiences do change both the brain’s physical structure (anatomy) and functional organization (physiology).

The brain can and does change or strengthen in response to the variety of levels we choose to perceive and think about in our experiences and other types of perceptions.  If we grow mentally rigid, this leads to hardening our heart and becoming extremely inflexible in our thinking, especially as we grow older.  The structure of our brains can be changed by what we focus our attention upon and what we choose to give value to as priority.

Thus, our brain learns by experience and is fully capable of re-programming itself to turn on synapses and increase neuronal activity, by strengthening the brain flexibility through open mindedness.

Being open-minded means being receptive to new ideas, knowledge and being adaptable to change.  Open-mindedness also relates to the way in which people approach the views and knowledge of others.  When we are open-minded we know that others should be free to express their views and that the value of others knowledge should be recognized.  When we are not threatened or scared by others point of view, our body and brain stays open, receptive and relaxed.  We seek to have dialogues and maintain a free information society that shares knowledge with humanitarian goals.  Our goal is to stay mentally open and mentally flexible with an empathic, loving and compassionate heart, and to allow other people to speak what they believe without instigating or condoning violence.  Here are some suggestions on keeping an open and flexible mind, which is crucial to keep ones heart open.  Remember an open mind equals an open heart.

Prayer and Meditation

Prayer and Meditation connect us to higher intelligence and have positive impacts on calming our mind.  Prayer focuses on positive emotions like love, gratitude and Compassion, which allow goodness in our lives and the lives of those we pray for.  Meditation reduces anxiety, stress, and depression, which helps us to find and connect to peaceful states.  Being mindful improves our mental flexibility, brain elasticity and keeps neurons active.  Spiritually centering ourselves on peace, prayer and contemplation of God/Universe, helps us maintain our trust in life, faith, and relaxes every part of the body.

Gratitude

Keep reinforcing the positive things that you have in your life right now.  Feel and express gratitude for the people, things, and experiences that are positive or have a silver lining for higher learning.  Reinforce one’s commitment to expressing love, goodness and gratitude, and to behave as ethically as Christ would.

Better Understand other People

It may be helpful to practice listening to perspectives different from our own, and to allow other people to challenge and stimulate our ways of thinking.  We have an incredible array of languages, cultures, and belief systems that define a variety of viewpoints on the earth.  When we are able to understand other people through their viewpoint, we are more empathic to them.  We can understand how they may feel.  This helps us to have compassion for people and not group them into statistics, countries, religions or some other classification system.  When we classify people, we start to disassociate from the fact they are human beings, our brothers and sisters that have a right to live upon this earth peacefully.

Learn Something New

Learn how to think and explore your own learning patterns by giving yourself time and space for reflection.  Notice how we are constantly bombarded by external forms of distraction.  Our creative minds may need to stay sequestered from the formulas given by society, and to seek answers in the most unpredictable places, or within the silence of meditation.  Do not be afraid to learn something new that requires concentration or be afraid of deeper knowledge of one’s own consciousness.  Stay informed and awake, be willing to see the things going on around you.  Being interested in higher learning expands one’s mind and consciousness.

Trust Yourself

Be aware that poor Self Esteem and lack of trust in our own abilities to learn and problem solve, will close our mind and harden our heart.  Do not feel intimidated by knowledge, competence or other people that criticize to shut you down.  Knowing that you are a worthy, valued and loved person, stay strong to build core self-esteem and self-efficiency, knowing that you can depend on yourself if the going gets rough.  Most of the fears we dwell on never come to pass.  As you focus on building the right relationship to self-acceptance and self-love, this builds trust and confidence in oneself.  Building trust in oneself and building trust with God are the only two relationships that we really need!  With those two relationships and ego surrender, all else will fall into place.

Forgiveness

To forgive another person or circumstances is the most generous thing one can do for oneself.  When we forgive others for perceived transgressions it frees us from the bonds, entanglements and cords, which manifest painful patterns such as judgments, resentments, and anger.  When we are angry it is a very destructive emotion that increases anxiety, harms our brain and closes our heart.  Forgiving yourself from being angry is the most important action one can take in clearing self-sabotaging bonds of victimhood.  Understanding the importance of forgiveness is that it brings you to the current state of now, rather than dwelling on past hurts and pain.  This is incredibly positive for reaching states of open mindedness and freer thinking to progress forward.

Stay Aware of Balance

Know that you are a multidimensional spiritual being with a body, mind, emotions and spirit.  What areas of your multidimensional being require more attention?  Keeping an open mind requires that we keep growing our self-awareness and consciousness, keep developing new interests, and remain receptive to new activities and ideas.  Yet, there are times we require rest, relaxation and have to let it all go in mental stillness.  Thus, as a balanced and healthy person we must try to move in and out of each state of rest and activity, in order to receive the positive benefits of both.

Sovereignty of Brain and Nervous System

Open your 12D Shield. Stabilize in your core and open a vortex field if that is part of your practice.  Feel free to call upon Krystal Star Guardians or guiding beings allied with your Divine Purpose.  Once your shield and core feel as stabilized as you can get them, speak to your body, brain and nervous system these words: My body, I speak to you as an intelligence and I speak to you with Love.  I am in charge of our God Sovereign Freedom and nothing will compromise this.  I will take care of you with all of my heart!  (Take a moment to feel this connection come alive.  Then say the following.)

  • I now command my Brain and Central Nervous System:
  • I Accept only messages that are truthful and organic to my highest consciousness in Christ.
  • I Accept only messages that support my higher good and Divine Blueprint in God Sovereign Freedom.
  • I Permit only that which supports my highest good and Divine Sovereign Purpose to Serve my God-Self.
  • I eliminate all messages that are inorganic or are harmful artificial intelligence, now.
  • Any inorganic intrusive or artificial messages, scripts or impulses are evicted and forbidden now.

As I am God Sovereign and Free, this I decree with all of my heart, mind and might to serve my God Self.  Beloved Body, thank you and so IT IS.  I seal and end my connection with love and gratitude.  Thank you!
